4 Signs You May Need a Water Line Repair or Replacement

Water Line

A damaged water line can cause serious problems for your home.

Having fresh water come into your home is an absolute necessity in this day and age. There’s a main water line that does all this for you, which is pretty durable and built to last, but sometimes those lines can break thanks to tree roots, corrosion, or even just because of the kind of pipe used. Let’s take a look at three signs that you may need your water line repaired or replaced.

Water Discoloration

The moment you realize any kind of unnatural discoloration in your water, you know you have a problem. Sometimes this problem is with your water line. It can happen when the pipes are exposed to dirt and soil that enter through cracks. Water discoloration is always concerning, so even if your line is ruled out as being the cause, make sure to follow up with it.

Soggy Spots on Lawn

If it hasn’t been raining yet you still find your lawn to be damp or soggy, that may mean your line cracked and water is leaking beneath the surface of your lawn. This is a pretty big deal and you should call a plumber immediately.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure can be caused by a whole host of different reasons, but one of those is a damaged water line. If you notice your water pressure suddenly change, your home may just not be getting enough water.

An Increased Water bill

Like low water pressure, significant changes in your water bill can be caused by a lot of different things. There may be a hidden leak somewhere within your home, but it’s also possible that the line itself needs to be repaired or replaced. Schedule a time for an expert technician to come out and take a look.
